Upturned world. The limp, untrustworthy planetary crust floats freely on a deep chemical ocean. The colonies here are built to cling underneath the planetary crust in suspension. Eight “hanging” undercities, containing almost a billion inhabitants, with trade deriving from ocean-depth mining and chemical treatment (processing plants exploit the curious mix of oceanic chemicals).
